. the referendum on barack obama was the presidential election and look at the turnout -- the people that came out for him. you continue to misread the results. >> i hate to agree with you because you are trying to disagree with me, so it gets really complicated here. [laughter] i agree with you that barack obama is one of the great candidates in american history and that explains why the democrats did well in 2008 and 2012 -- we had a great candidate -- in 2010, when you neutralize the factor of the candidate, the republicans prevailed, which tells me that republican ideas are strong, and you have to have a candidate or a class of people that can explain it. >> that is the subject of the message to the american people, and they bought it. >>ut in 10, obacareas a factor and it will be a factor in 2014, do you not agree? >> it might very well be, but i will point out that we have returned to the days of yesteryear when dr. krauthammer was laboring in the democratic vineyards, and the explanation was ronald reagan won because he was a superior candidate, he was engaging, likeable and charismatic, a
status for immigrants. some people thought this last election debacle there would be pointing fingers. there's a lot of that that goes on but some of this stuff is really i think productive for them now. >> rose: cyprus cyber warre and american politics when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: the debt crises in europe is back in the headlines, al eyes are on cyprus the tiny mediterranean nation. with the weekend the population was told by the eu the and the ifm on bank deposits in exchange for financial bailout. but early today the cyprusian government is sparking concern throughout the region. joining me is andrew ross sorkin of the "new york times" and francesco guerrera for financil economic. simon i'll win good you. what's going on. >> well the explanation part is that a number of cyprian banks gambled and lost in a big way on greek debt. they facing big losses and these banks are big relative to the economy. the economy needs financial assistance from the outside from the european union and

. how things work. at i he up sghebs >> well, it's quite clear to everyone that this pope was elected on a reform mandate. that is the other 114 cardinals in the sistine chapel who elected cardinal jorge mario bergoglio as pope francis want someone who is going to shake up entrenched ways of doing business in the vatican and when they talk about reform they're not talking about secular model of reform meaning changes to church teaching on matters such as abortion or birth control. instead they're talking about changes in business management in the vatican towards making the burearacy here more transparent, that is both internally and externally, making it clearer who's making decisions and why and also doing a better job communicating with the outside world towards making it more accountable. that is the idea that there ought to be penalties for poor performance and towards making it efficient. the notion being is that there thinking in centuries may have cut it once upon a while but in a 21st century world it simply doesn't do it anymore. that's what these cardinals mean by reform an

-- some headline risks this year. tlets let's not forget, this is a german election year. september. merkel has to convince her voters she should be re-elected. and i wouldn't put that past what's happening in cyprus and what other headlines we come up during the duration of this year. >> let's talk about things closer to home, earnings. you heard in tyler's report we've had disappointing earnings recently. we're going to get a lot of reports over the next couple weeks. are they going to shape the direction of the markets? >> well, first off, we had a weak market today and i think it's important to take it in stride. we had a great run, but it is concerning when the markets move up in a straight line up or down. so some consolidation is actually healthy. two, when it comes to earnings, we do expect earnings not to be too strong in the second quarter. let's remember what just happened. the payroll tax going away, the sequester that's really going to start hitting in april. therefore the second quarter. so earnings in the short term might seem weak, but we do believe over the next cou
hurt from the elections. and one of the criticisms leveled at him was he mismanaged the relationship with the united states. and here was the president all smiles and friendship and patting each other on the back. that was very good for mr. netanyahu. he relished it and he took advantage of it. but this was the first cause. the second cost somewhat less tasty for the prime minister. >> rose: what is less tasty for him? >> he himself endorsed or reendorsed the idea of two state solution for a palestinian state. but his concept of a state or his concept of a settlement is more modest than that of president obama. and when secretary of state kerry returns to the region in a short while to pursue the work, these differences will surface. they were not-- they came out unilaterally by the president in the speech but they will come up fully when secretary kerry returns to the region. >> rose: but how did barack obama come to the presidency with what attitudes did israel, what commitments, what sense of significance for him? >> i think you have two book ends to this story. the cairo speech o
and eventually spread to baghdad.ll >> rose: so then bush-- there was an election in 2008, and barack obama was elected president. he come spodz office with what assumptions about iraq, and how did his views on iaq play out? >> well, president obama, as a candidate-- and i interviewed him twice on iraq, single subject, as a candidate-- his view was he campaigned on ae platform of taking all of the american combat brigades out inn 16 months with a date certain. >> rose: okay, then he gets into power, and he withdraws the troops. and then there are negotiations to leave some troops, which yous you believe was a significantwa mistake, that negotiation failed. and so they did not leave five, 000, or 1000 troops there. 1 what happened? >> well, first off, withha president obama, he really did not fulfill his campaign promisf literally of taking the troops out in 16 months.s he pretted much ended up takingly them out on george bush's schedule, the end of 2011. two, the other thing is what people don't realize is the t obama administration tried to de a lot more than just take troops out. they tri
the parties is too large. that we've -- we as republicans basically have not acknowledged the election. that's the problem. it is not urgent. the congressional budget office debt projections show pretty much stable u.s. indetectivedness for the next ten years. they do not show anything that looks like a crisis. we have long, long run problems but not anything that has to be dealt with this year or five years from now or seven years from now. >> are you worried about the consumers who paired their debt? it was much higher than a decade, decade and a half ago? >> consumers continued to pear it back some. that's one of the reasons we've had such a slow recovery. it's on the right trajectory. >> if you look at the biggest challenges that you see facing the u.s. economy over the next decade give me three that come top at mind. >> first of all we're part of a year. we're not alone. europe is really a mess. i worry about blow back from the split cat swachlths that's an economic political problem. i worry about our own politics. we have, you know, it's one thing. i don't think we need a grand bargai
the election and style of pope francis, franciscan monks may be the most pleased of all. they see the new pope extolling the same priorities as their founder did, seeing god in all creation, ministering to the poor and being open to dialogue with people of other religions. we spoke last weekend with father larry dunham at washington's franciscan monastery of the holy land in america. >> this is our first sunday to gather as a catholic community to pray for our new pope, pope francis. the name he chose after st. francis of assisi certainly gladdens the hearts of all franciscans. one reason why everyone takes francis to their heart is because he is not perceived specifically as a catholic saint, he's not perceived as specifically belonging to christian people but he seems to be someone that appeals to all men and women regardless of their religious background or lack thereof. francis considers himself to be a brother to everyone. he found god's life not only in every man or women but in all creation so every living thing. and so he could preach to the birds and he could preach to the forest. he
values. so they elect to buy now. >> reporter: the vacancy rate for the community is around 2%, because low prices are luring buyers. as for his older neighbors, charlie rogue has nothing but respect. but he doesn't know many of them because he's usually out at work. fo nightly business report, i'm diana olick in boca raton, florida. >> this is an interesting angle in real estate, but i'm hearing more and more people saying i wish i had bought some properties during the downturn. >> absolutely. some of those prices came down so far, but it took a brave human being to go in at the depth of the housing crash in those cities like miami, las vegas, riverside county in california. really took some nerve to it. i didn't do it. >> i didn't either. that's it for us on nightly business report. thanks so much for watching. >> have a great evening. we'll see you back here tomorrow night. >>> glad so to have you with us. it's tuesday, march 26th. the united nation staff in syria are packing up and getting ready to move. u.n. spokespersons say about half of their foreign
understands in order to maintain his majority in the senate he has to see most if notal of those senators re-elected. already it is a difficult prospect, and it would be made more difficult, reid fears, if they were asked to vote on this. >> woodruff: when senator feinstein says reid has promised hear, in essence, he will let her introduce an amendment there, will be a vote on the amendment, what are the prospickets it's going to get any easier then? >> reporter: as reid said very specifically yesterday, quite astonish will, he said he doesn't think it has even 40 votes but it will fulfill a promise he made on behalf of the president to hold an up-or-down vote on this measure even if it doesn't have support. it has broad support in polling the "washington post" has done and pew has done and other groups but considering the breakdown of the senate whe you need 60 votes in order to end debate on something and about that number-- well, you really need just about 50 for final passage but in order to get over the procedural hurdle in the senate you need 6015, maybe 20 are not comfortable voting for this

's the only prime minister that has won back-to-back elections sequentially and the fact is he's challenged now by two upstarts. lapid and bennett, both of whom are not focused in the main on foreign policy and security issues but on social and economicnes so it's a paradox, in order to maintain his relevance as a foreign policy national security guy-- which is his strong suit-- the fact is he does need a better relationship with obama because obama holds the key on that front, certainly on iran. >> reporter: speaking of iran-- and i'll come back to that relationship-- is what the president saided in an interview with israeli television, will that comfort israelis? >> it certainly should comfort israelis. after all, the record suggests that the administration has worked very, very hard on the iranian challenge and the president has said that take my word, we're not interested in containing iran, we're interested in preventing iran from developing nuclear technology. i think it should assuage israelis who are concerned about this issue i wonder why-- and this seems to be part of the conversa
elected in 2008: that the people should compel their leaders to action. >> let me say this as a politician, i can promise you this: political leaders will not take risks if the people do not demand that they do. you must create the change that you want to see. >> warner: the evening closed with a state dinner; tomorrow, the president leaves for jordan. >> brown: a short time ago, i spoke to margaret in jerusalem. >> brown: mgaret, start wit the speech there in jerusalem. the president has been unpopular in israel. he specifically targeted young israelis in this major address. what did officials there tell you about the message he wanted to get across? >> warner: jeff, he wanted to do very much what he did in the 2008 campaign as a senator in which he directly appealed to younger and uninvolved citizens, people who have been apolitical in the past to get engaged and get involved and actually believe they can change their country. and really very resonant of the '80 8 campaign. he had e line at the end where he said "as we face the twilight of israel's founding generation, young people of is
